Posts from August 2013

Dear email readers ... I had a Feedburner fail that leaves you out in the cold this week

I wrote two posts yesterday: the usual Wednesday listings post and a video commemorating yesterday's 50th anniversary of the March on Washington with MLK's words on the importance of jazz.  Feedburner, a Google product (although I hesitate to say that as they seem to have abandoned it), failed me and consequently those of you who prefer to consume your Jazz@Rochester via email.  It isn't the first time and I'm considering going with another service. I'm afraid despite my efforts at fixing it, I can't make Feedburner go back and send it out again (and I'd prefer not pulling the list of your emails and sending it out under my account for various reasons). 

I know some of you hardly realize there is a blog site behind the emails you get (so many of you write "love your emails..."), but there is and if you're needing your fix of Jazz@Rochester, just click on one or both of the links above to see them.  Of course, there's nothing to say that this post will not suffer the same fate and make it a waste of space. Feeds don't fail me now.... (with a hat tip to Little Feat).

Martin Luther King on the importance of jazz...

In 1964, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. opened the Berlin Jazz Festival with the speech, "On the Importance of Jazz." Jazz may have changed over the years, but his words still ring true today. To honor Martin Luther King's legacy and the March on Washington and "Dream" speech we commemorate today, I'm sharing a video recently made by Area artists presenting King's speech.

Jazz Around Town: While some who play it are gone, jazz still lives in ROC

image from media.npr.orgI was saddened hearing that Marian McPartland had passed away at 95 yesterday.  In addition to sometimes calling Rochester her second hometown, McPartland's Piano Jazz radio show on National Public Radio was one place that I was introduced to the music, the love of which drives what I do here.  Rest well, Miss McPartland....

Jazz Around Town: We're on a staycation ... perhaps we'll go hear some jazz?

Jazz 1 WayI've often written these posts while visiting my father in Kansas. In a great turnaround, he and my step-mom Kay are visiting us here in Rochester. We took quite the tour of our fair city this afternoon. Paid our respects to Frederick Douglass and Susan B., had a flight at the Genesee Brewery tasting room (love that Cream Ale... really!) and walked out on the pier at Charlotte, with a white hot in Washington Square Park in the middle.
